Please Note: The information below applies to the Door Lock Guard for exterior entry doors that are 1 3/4" thick. We also make a Door Lock Guard for interior doors that are 1 3/8" thick. You can see it here.
The vast majority of the time when force is applied to a door, such as being kicked, shoulder-slammed or pried, it's the door jamb that breaks. However, often times the door will actually split apart also. Review the images below.
For a some time there's been a relatively simple, but "not great" solution to the problem. People put what's called a "lock reinforcer" on the door. It's a very thin "U" shaped metal device about 4-5" tall that caps the edge of the door around the door knob latch and/or the deadbolt stem. And that's ok, BUT it takes up too much space in the area between the door and the door jamb, which means that we would have to make the Door Security Pro out of a much thinner steel in order to also use a lock reinforcer. Thinner steel as we already know doesn't work, so we won't do it. Plus, they don't stop someone from being able to pry the door open. Ours solution does.
Also, lock reinforcers are ONLY secured to the face of the door by tiny, short Philips heads screws that only slightly penetrate the door. How can tiny screws that barely go into the door possibly keep a door from splitting apart around the lock if a lot of force is applied to the door? They can't, so again, that's why we won't make or sell that type of a product. We use stainless steel barrel bolts that go all the way through the door.
Here's Our Solution...And It Works on Any Exterior Door
Below are the Door Lock Guard Components:
On the left are the 5 components that comprise the Door Lock Guard (the installation screws are not shown but are included). On the right are the 4 components assembled that go on the door (the 5th part attaches to the outside of the door frame as shown in the far right picture below).

We Even Went One Step Further...
What about when someone tries to pry a door open? Almost no one addresses this issue, but it's a big problem. Often, "would-be" intruders will try to insert something like a pry bar or a large screwdriver in the crack between the door and the door frame near the door knob and/or deadbolt. That is, if they can't first force the door open by kicking it or shoulder-slamming it.
If you look at the images above, the picture on the left is what the door looks like from the inside of the house with the Door Lock Guard installed on it. The middle picture is what the door looks like from the outside of the house (with the door open). The picture on the far right is how we solved the "prying" issue. In the middle picture, notice that the door guard is a "U" shaped channel. In the far right picture, notice that the metal strip on the left has a "Z" shape. That "Z" goes into the "U" when the door is closed, thereby preventing someone from being able to pry the door open. It's secured to the door with stainless steel binding posts. Each binding post is inserted though one of the Door Lock Guard plates, THROUGH THE DOOR and through the other Door Lock Guard plate. This system, when installed, acts like a vise that clamps the door together over the deadbolt (or door handle latch), and prevents the door from splitting apart. Plus, it cannot be removed from the outside.
Please Note: Although we make this product in white, we suggest that you paint it to match the color of your door and door trim. By painting each component to match the respective background that it's mounted to, it blends in so well that it's hardly noticable.
Here's a Door Lock Guard (and a Door Security Pro) that's been painted to match the door and door trim:
